Addis Ababa – The African Union (AU) has commended efforts made by Morocco to bring together representatives of the Libyan Parliament and the High Council of State to re-launch the process aimed at achieving a political solution to the Libyan crisis.
“I commend the efforts of Morocco in bringing together the representatives of the Parliament and of the Libyan High Council of State in order to re-launch the process of a political solution to the Libyan crisis”, Chairperson of the African Union Commission Moussa Faki Mahamat said Monday on Twitter.
Mahamat “strongly encourages the parties to embark on this path.”
The Libyan dialogue between the delegations of the Libyan High Council of State and the Parliament of Tobruk began Sunday in Bouznika.
This dialogue aims to maintain the ceasefire and open negotiations to end conflicts between Libyan parties.
It takes place a few weeks after the visit to Morocco of the President of the Libyan High Council of State, Khaled Al Mechri, and the Speaker of the Libyan Parliament, Aguila Salah, following the invitation of the speaker of the Moroccan House of Representatives.
The Libyan dialogue also follows the visit to Morocco of the Acting Special Representative and Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Stéphanie Williams, as part of the consultations conducted with the Libyan parties, as well as with regional and international partners in order to find a solution to the Libyan crisis.
